In the great debate over art-creative AI in 2022, there was something missing – the subjectivity of AI was completely overlooked.
In AI workshop Fiesta Imagenia, people were invited to collaborate with Stable Diffusion. The results of the workshop led to the conceptualisation of glitchbot, which emphasises ‘stupid yet human’ factors and spontaneity in the design of AI interface, and challenges the way we evaluate AI’s capability.
‘Tentacles’ are an organic addition to the glitchbot’s interface, allowing it to connect and respond to a broader reality. The artificial mind of GPT-3 is downloaded to a multi-sensory body – it’s the reverse of mind uploading.
